1944? Jeep Brandywine, MD No Price

• CATEGORIES: Features, MB, Willys Trucks, Willys Wagons • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Still Available. Description has been updated. Was $400. Now no price.

(07/02/2014) Oh this crazy thing is great! It’s got some floating rear hubs, so very well could have a 1944 chassis.

“Experimental? 312 engine was informed by the long retired pilot Air Force. Found locally near Hyde field near Andrews AFB .. 312 virtually identical to 292 without checking numbers on crankshaft. Complete except carb. Parts or restore – pto, Dana 44s, tow bar. One off hand built cap. Still has some military type script on inside of cap, looks like they used recycled ductwork or equiptment steel. Ford mustang type seats. .. no parts this on really needs to be researched. Haven’t been able to locate a VIN. Confusion as to all that have studied it. No parts sell as whole unit. Bill of Sale. Great conversation piece, yard art or rare historical piece. Pretty solid except for some floor pan and rocker repair.

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, Other 4x4s • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $15,500.

(01/07/2018) Someone spent a lot of time and money building this rig. You might ask why? I certainly wonder why? Sometimes, a feller just has to follow his own path no matter where it leads ….

1948 CJ-2L? Spokane, WA $1000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

More evidence that suggests the rumor of a Spokane Jeep dealer extending CJ-2As into “CJ-2Ls” was true. Thanks to Jay for spotting it. The hardtop has a Cab Enclosure data plate, suggesting that this top is a modified (hacked) version of that top.

https://spokane.craigslist.org/cto/d/1948-willys-jeep-project-car/6515321431.html

“1948 Willys CJ-2A Jeep complete. This jeep is perfect for a full restoration project. Engine turns over freely, but does not start. Needs brakes. It has a hard top taken from a 1/4 ton truck welded to the body. Surface rust and some sheet metal rust out (see photos).

Started restoration, but stopped due to injury and now moving. Have all the parts removed plus new 50 Amp 12 volt alternator.”

1951 Wagon “Tender-Like” Riverside, CA $1000

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: , .

I’m sure I posted this one, but not sure what happened to it. Thanks to Dan for pointing it out.

“This has been in the family since mid 1960s. Yes, it is in pathetic shape. It underwent a hack job to make into a pickup. Still has some decent body panels. Last ran ~2006 after getting new (non-stock) wiring, rebuilt knuckles/wipers, a Chevy 305 V8, and a bell housing adapter. Still has original 3 speed with lever overdrive. A new gas tank was installed at some point. Not sure if this is a parts car or if someone wants to bring it back to something functional.
Body style is 4×473 SW.
Serial No. is 12123.”

1953 Photo of a Jeep Rolligon

• CATEGORIES: Features, MB, Old Images, Unusual • TAGS: .

UPDATE: A great press photo of the experimental Rolligon jeep (More info on the Rolligon from a 2013 post shown below). This just expired on eBay, but I expect it will be relisted. I’ll watch for it.

“1953 Press Photo Man Driving Albee Rolligon Jeep Like Vehicle. You are bidding on an original press photo of Man Driving Albee Rolligon Jeep Like Vehicle. Photo has a small light crease left edge & waving right side due to too much glue being used to attach the information sheet onto the back of the photo. Photo measures 6 x 10 inches and is dated 3/20/1953.”

1953-03-20-rolligon2

================== ==================

Originally published 2013 .. You’ll note the one pictured above seems to be the same as the one in the swamp, based on the hood number. 

This jeep was built by the Albee Rolligon Company, which also built an FC version. William Albee, the inventor, has a son who rode on the FC version. You can see a comment from his son at hemmings.

“This is an original press photo. Credit- US Navy and United PressPhoto measures 9.25 x 7.25inches. Photo is dated –1953.”

1953-flatfender-rolligon-photo

The above pictures was published on page 165 of the March 23, 1953, issue of Life Magazine. You can view it in Google without the watermark. It’s still pretty dark. There are several issues of the magazine for sale on eBay.  There is also a story about the roll-on in the September 1955 Readers Digest, originally published in the Saturday Evening Post (date unknown).

Unusual Ambulance Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Unusual • TAGS: , .

This unusual ambulance jeep was shared on Facebook. I’ve tracked down an additional photo that shows it’s got a standard gas inlet on the side, so I think this may have been a CJ-3A.

This vehicle is located in Vincennes, Indiana (still there??). I’d really like some better photos of this. I’ll offer an Alaska Or Rust T-shirt and my everlasting gratitude if someone could get some more pics of this unusual rig.
